Family Portraits on client’s yard!

Hi Marlene,

As always, you were right!  Thank  you for convincing me there would be a good spot on our yard to be photographed; I now see the area as more than just ‘the rest of the yard!’ 

We have been fortunate over the years to have you photograph us numerous times and each time you capture the true character of each of us. Your artistic talent is second to none! Thank you so much.

As you can see, I chose not to re-paint the wall color as it works with both, the 2004 and 2015 portraits.

 Sincerely, The Wiebes: Frieda, Albert, Auriel, Sidney, Celia


When I went to scout out Frieda & Albert’s yard, I was so excited to see 3 gorgeous backgrounds that I could use.  This really was my favourite.  I love the depth of the background in this portrait in the client’s location.   By the way, if you’re driving by my studio, you can see this photograph displayed outdoors!

I asked Frieda to photograph their portrait on their wall and she sent me the photograph of the previous portrait, which was moved from over the loveseat to over the piano.   I love the portrait I did of them in my back yard when the children were much younger.  The fall colours were amazing.
